Consultant will help Cleveland district decide whether to close facilities

March 5, 2009
System has seen enrollment decline this decade from 80,000 to 50,000

Management consultants who helped New Orleans decide which schools to reopen after Hurricane Katrina will help Cleveland determine which schools, if any, should close. Boston Consulting Group, an international firm based in Massachusetts, will study use of buildings in Cleveland, where enrollment has declined this decade from nearly 80,000 to 50,000. The report won't recommend specific actions but will draft criteria the district can cite in making what will be contentious choices.
